2018 spring series
"From Here to Eternity - Living, Dying and Grieving Well"
St Johns Camberwell will be holding its 2018 Spring Series sessions over three consecutive Sundays 7th, 14th & 21st October each lasting about one hour, following the 10.o0am Sung Eucharist at 11.30am. This years series is just one month away. Some excellent speakers will help us reflect spiritually on the end-of-life issues we rarely speak about, as well as offer some important practical information and resources.
The main speaker at the first session will be the Revd. Canon Dr Colleen O'Reilly, the Vicar of St George's Malvern, and well known to many in this parish. Her doctoral thesis looked at the ways in which Christian rites serve pastoral needs, as in the way the funeral service is an essential rite of passage for both the the deceased person, and the mourners, if they are to live well with the loss. She teaches clergy how to make effective use of Anglican rites, and enables people to appreciate how the funeral service expresses faith in the God of transformed life, and meets pastora need in a confusing time.
For the second session we are fortunate to have secured as our main speaker Dr Barbara Hayes, a palliative care physician who is also involved in advanced care planning. Dr Hayes is an Anglican.
The third session will be led by the Vicar who brings his many years as aparish priest ministering to people facing critical life issues.
All are welcome to one or all of these sessions.
Place a note in your diaries today. We hope to see you there.
